BALTIMORE (WJZ) — An investigation is underway after several cars’ tires were slashed in a north Baltimore community.

The slashings happened on Northwood Drive. Police said they got the call at around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

“My neighbors down here, they got both his and his wife’s car,” neighborhood resident Cheryl said.

One of those who woke up to the costly vandalism was Amanda, whose silver Lexus was one of the vehicles hit.

“Very disappointing, inconvenience, I had to take a day off,” she said.

Police took 12 reports on the scene, but neighbors said 20 tires were slashed overall.

Neighbor Joyce Edyen said she’s disgusted with whoever did this.

“Find something to do with your time!” Edyen said.

Repair crews fixed what they could, while tow trucks were called in for the more heavily damaged vehicles.

The cost of the total damage is estimated to be in the thousands.

“Tires are expensive. Yeah, people came through, sliced them, and people have to buy tires, you can’t just do a plug,” one of the repair crews said.

But for one neighbor, it’s about more than the money.

“I was just telling my dad, ‘What if I had my appointment today to get my treatment? Chemo,” Cheryl said.

Anyone with information can call Baltimore police.
